From the New Republic...
"The American people see earmarks as the gateway to spending," I remember Tennessee's Marsha Blackburn, a rising House GOP star who stumped tirelessly for McCain, telling me back in December. Asked to recount one time a voter asked her about earmarks on the trail, she fell silent. "Oh, yes, we've, um, let's see ... I'm trying to think ..."

Let me give you a refresher in what it is to be a Democrat, courtesy of the TNGOP...
To “register” as a Democrat is to commit publicly and in writing to support a party that believes an expansive government is the answer to all needs and questions (a hand out, always).
To “register” as a Democrat is to commit publicly and in writing to support a party that support appeasement with terrorists and enemies of America, even while men and women are in harm’s way, defending our security and freedoms.
To “register” as a Democrat is to support abortion, even up to the last trimester of pregnancy; to support the notion that special rights for homosexual couples are akin to the Civil Rights fought for by and on behalf of African Americans for decades.
To “register” as a Democrat is to admit publicly that you view tax dollars as possessions of the government and a “patriotic duty” rather than money taken from hard-working citizens and a reduction of individual freedom, that you support doing nothing effective about illegal immigration, rather than addressing the legal and lawful entry into our country as a priority for those who want to work and study legally as citizens.
Do you agree?!! Mr. Hobbs wants to know...

Some background info from Rep. Blackburn...
I am honored to be a U.S. Congressman. I wake up every day thankful for the opportunity to serve. I want to continue to be your voice in Washington for our conservative values.
In this environment, I intend to work with the new administration when I can, not give up my conservative principles and represent the views of the people in the 7th District.
Our campaign office is open as our staff prepares for another election cycle. I need your help! We must raise money early to prepare for another opponent(s). I know I will always be a target because of being an outspoken conservative.
I appreciate having your support in our re-election effort. It is an honor to serve in Congress, to represent you and our conservative agenda.
We love who?
